Return of the Yesteryear Road Run

Sunday 27 April sees the return of the Yesteryear Road Run, a spectacular procession of vintage and classic vehicles and motorbikes through our local villages. Cancer Research UK is this year’s charity with the understanding that any monies raised will be used locally.

In its heyday, the Road Run attracted over 300 entries, from live steam to classic sports cars, motorbikes, tractors to stationary engines, so there is something for everyone. It is hoped to get the same response from enthusiasts in 2014.

The route is : (timings are approximate) leave Cottenham Green at 9.30am then onto Rampton Green for 10.00am,  Willingham for 10.45am, Over around 11.30am stopping at Swavesey Village College for lunch at approx 12.15pm then onto Longstanton for 1.45pm Oakington at 2.30pm Histon for 3.15pm then finishing back in Cottenham at 4.00pm.

There is no direct charge for joining in the Road Run, but a donation of £10 would be greatly appreciated.

The organisers are asking for volunteer bucket shakers, and of course entrants to the parade. So look out for flyers and posters or if you know anyone who may be interested then please give them the details or point them in the direction of the website

Also check out the Cancer Research website for downloading an entrance form if you haven’t got one directly from the organisers.
